JAMS and NYIAC Announce Collaboration to Support and Promote International Arbitration

NYIAC@JAMS will expand space and resources available to promote global dispute resolution in New York and beyond

New York – JAMS, the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services worldwide, is pleased to announce its collaboration with the New York International Arbitration Center, Inc. (NYIAC). This joint effort will promote and support international arbitration in New York.

NYIAC is a nonprofit organization formed to advance, strengthen and promote the conduct of international arbitration in New York. The organization offers venues for ADR proceedings, develops programs and materials on international arbitration in New York and the application of New York law in disputes, and engages in activities to keep the city and state at the forefront of the industry.

We are excited for this opportunity to support the tremendous work that NYIAC does. We believe that this collaboration will greatly benefit our global and cross-border panelists, as well as members of NYIAC, drawing from the decades of shared international dispute resolution experience and commitment to the international legal community.

- Chris Poole, JAMS CEO.

I am eager to see this cooperative framework grow and contribute to New York’s flourishing global arbitration practice and scholarship.

- Robert B. Davidson, Esq., FCIArb, executive director of JAMS’ arbitration practice and a member of NYIAC’s Global Advisory Board

This joint effort, dubbed NYIAC@JAMS, will allow NYIAC to bring international arbitrations to JAMS’ New York Resolution Center, which comprises two floors in the New York Times Building, and open the door for increased collaboration on thought leadership between the two organizations. Efforts will also include the development and promotion of events for the international arbitration community that will be hosted at JAMS, in parallel with expanding access through virtual platforms.

New York is a vibrant global center for international arbitration with counsel, arbitrators and experts who contribute to the resolution of some of the largest commercial disputes in the world. Our relationship with JAMS will enable NYIAC to offer more options for hearing space in New York and further our objectives of promoting New York as a venue and New York as a substantive choice of law for commercial parties. We look forward to working with our friends at JAMS.

- Louis B. Kimmelman, NYIAC board chairman
